Often times, watches are nowhere to find when you needed it on special occasion. It was challenging as to how compact would it be to make such box that can hold watches. I was reminded of how the bees are are well organized so I made this box.
The rhumboid design was started long time ago on sketchup and been always a challenge to make it real. A lot of troubles and remedies came during the construction. But I am so thankful for the encouragement of those buddies I have in LJ. Inspired and challenged by Martyn, Spalm, Degose, Andy, David, and many others, I combined those tutorials in making this construction.
But most of all, I like to thank Rand for the spiral router bits he gave me. I have used the 1/8” straight bit for making the groove where the dividers are glued. The rabbets on both bottom and top lid are also done by router.
In this project, my patience was really tested specially in the glue-up. Likewise the use of sliding miter saw let me face the greatest hazard in cutting those small pieces. The box is 12 inches corner to corner and height is 4 inches.
Lastly, I like to thank 2010 where the lumberjock came into my life and given me a lot of knowledge. Looking forward for more in 2011…. and years after. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
